Chiefs suddenly stingy defense gets test in AFC title game

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The only defense the Kansas City Chiefs played most of this season was, well, in defense of their own defense, which gave up so many yards and points that it became a running joke around the league.

Yes, the Chiefs scored in bushels. They also allowed points in bunches.

The fact that they spent most of the season coughing up 30 points and 400-plus yards per game came despite the fact that they excelled at sacking the quarterback. They finished with 52 of them, tied for the NFL lead, thanks primarily to the trio of Chris Jones, Dee Ford and Justin Houston.
